Pineapple bittergourd salad


I am always excited when I get invited to home cooked meals. It is almost guaranteed we will be well-fed with the food lovingly prepared. Through these home cooked meals, we get a prelude of our host culture, heritage and lifestyle.

At the recent cell meets, PT's helper, Joselyn made this wonderful refreshing salad. I don't usually ask for the recipe, but this is so deliciously good!
If you think that these ingredients make an odd combination, well you will be blown away just like I did.

I made a bowl today to accompany the fried fish dish for dinner tonight and watched my sceptical sister took a bite, her face lightened up, and then I have to stop her from finishing it.

So here you are, Joselyn's pineapple bitter gourd salad. Enjoy!

You will need:

1 tablespoon of salt
1 pineapple cored and sliced
1 bitter gourd, sliced thinly
half teaspoon of oregano
3/4 cup distilled vinegar
1 cup sugar
Dash of sesame oil

  2. Boil the sugar and vinegar till sugar dissolved, leave to cool.
  3. Combined sugar vinegar, sesame oil, oregano to the pineapple and bitter gourd.
  4. Chilli for garnish.
